Main Threads:restore from 8 to 8.1
  • So I had a huge problem updating from windows 8 to 8.1. Basically my hard drive is toast, and I need to do a clean install of windows. At this point in time the only available OS is 8.1. My question is: If I have a backup of windows 8, is it still possible to restore my system on a computer with windows 8.1 installed if I just download Aomei Backuper and click restore from the UI? Any help or advice would be very much appreciated as it's been about two and a half weeks since I used my own computer.

    Yes, you can. If you overwrite Windows 8 partition to install Windows 8.1. You should make sure the size of system partition keeps the same size as original or larger than original size. If you have any further questions please feel free to let us know.
